Like I spoke about earlier in the week, yesterday a good friend and I participated in St. Louis's Caliente for the Cure, which was put on by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Over 600 ladies (and a few men) showed up and helped raise nearly $42,000 for breast cancer research. We had a blast shaking our booties for two hours of Zumba. Sweating for a good cause...what could be better?

Sunday was church, which was long overdue. For some reason or another, things have been popping up, and we haven't made it as much of a priority as we should have. I was really glad that we went to Mass, and even though the homily wasn't my favorite, it was really good for my soul to be back.
After Mass, we went to see Man of Steel with my friend and her husband. I loved Henry Cavill when he was in The Tudors, and was happy that I wasn't disappointed with his Superman role. I've never been much of a Superman fan (really..no one can tell who he is because of those glasses?!) or DC Comics (more of a marvel fan), but I was pretty impressed with the acting and special effects. And the Henry eye candy, of course.
After that we went out for Mexican, which was just ok, and hurried home to get ready for the new season of True Blood. I don't know if it was the disappointment at not having a new Game of Thrones or what, but this episode didn't excite me. Even the season preview was just kind of blah. I've read the first 7 books of the series, and they were so good, but it seems like they are following along with the books less and less. We'll see. They haven'y lost me as a viewer, yet.
Happy Monday, everyone!
